Model Bar Refaeli doesn't want Israel to be known as a 'problematic country in the Middle East'

Model and entrepreneur Bar Refaeli doesn't want Israel to be known as a "problematic country in the Middle East."

"It's called the 'startup nation' not for nothing," Refaeli says of her home country, where she discussed her entrepreneurial and philanthropic projects while backstage at the Forbes Under 30 Global summit.



Meanwhile, just last May, she took heat for still not serving in Israel's military.

“The people of Israel will remember that you did not enlist,” one commenter wrote, according to Israel’s Maariv news site. “Before you think you represent the state, you have to have a background of compulsory service or national service,” the commenter continued, saying she was “not like the rest of us” who served in the Israeli Defense Forces.

Others came to the model’s defense, with one saying, “everyone does what they can for the state.”

Refaeli skipped out on military service by marrying a family friend twice her age (married women receive an automatic exemption from IDF service) and then quickly divorcing him.
